Scaling AI in Life Sciences
In this article
Life Sciences companies are increasingly using data, machine learning processes and technology to drive and accelerate value. However, silos of compute as well as suboptimal data and code practices are reducing scientist productivity, ROI and drug program success. WWT and partners including NVIDIA are addressing these challenges by using data strategy services, code optimization practices and purpose-built AI infrastructure to deliver cost-optimized, hybrid cloud machine learning (ML) platforms.
Use cases for life sciences
R&D focus areas (algorithm-driven)
- Computational chemistry
- Natural language processing (NLP)
- Structural biology
- Clinical trials
- Supply chain
Limited GPUs as well as burdensome code management and data preparation practices can decrease data scientist productivity. It can also result in job dissatisfaction, distraction from the company's core mission, inflated costs, and reduced value creation. These issues can be addressed with a hybrid cloud ML platform that is supported by a comprehensive data science program. Leveraging WWT services along with NVIDIA software and hardware including the DGX H100 SuperPOD™ for Drug Discovery enables companies to identify and address areas of friction, ultimately driving increased productivity and an improved user experience.
Most data scientists spend at least 30% of their time identifying and preparing data for use in experiments and large-scale training. With our hybrid cloud solution, you can leverage WWT data strategy services to ensure data scientists can obtain the right data quickly and easily. This improves value creation and job satisfaction.
Enable faster code iteration and expedite moving models to production by establishing repeatable steps and creating a platform for best-practice sharing through the proper use of MLOps practices, code management tools and code processes.
GPU utilization rates often struggle to reach and sustain projected ROI within expected timeframes. Ops-in-code increases automation and exposes hardware calls, driving up utilization and reducing the time data scientists spend on managing hardware.
Our deep domain experience enables us to work fast and deliver value quickly. Our dedicated Life Sciences team has expertise in computational chemistry, biomedical engineering, computational biology and other related areas. Together, WWT and NVIDIA deliver a fully validated operating environment for infrastructure management, data science, and research along with an NVIDIA-engineered solution for streamlined scalability and predictable performance. WWT's consulting services combined with NVIDIA hardware and software help life sciences companies reduce organizational silos, improve scientist productivity, reduce costs and ultimately increase drug program success.
